The first Usk Choral Festival held in March 2019 was a spectacular success.
Usk was full of happy faces all weekend with every concert sold out.
The singing was spellbinding and audiences were moved to tears and cheers.
Building on the success of the 2019 Festival it will now become a biennial event happening every 2 years.
Usk Choral Festival is based on two main principles, it's non-competitive, and it incorporates a wide mix of music in every concert.
We simply want to celebrate choral music in all its forms and give a platform to all the wonderful choirs in the area.
Come to the 2021 Festival and experience everything from the classic majesty of plainchant and Renaissance polyphony, the vivacity of contemporary tunes, the rich jazzy harmonies of modern acapella and everything in between.

Comments on the 2019 Festival
"You've done a totally amazing job organising the festival. I know what it takes to take a large scale project from the initial idea stage to actually happening and I'm sure it has been a vast amount of work and lots of stress at times too! Everything seems to have worked perfectly and the organisation and planning has been meticulous. It's a fantastic idea and has been wonderful for bringing so many people together from a wide range of backgrounds through their shared love of singing - CONGRATULATIONS!"
"What a feast of a weekend! Thank you for taking the time and making the effort so that the weekend was such a huge success. Such joyful faces and such delight in singing. It did the heart good."
"Well done Festival Committee! All the concerts have been fantastic! Lots of different choirs, some small, some huge. Lots of different sorts of music. All running like clockwork. I’m looking forward to listening again tomorrow."
Thanks so much for all your hard work in getting this festival going and running it so smoothly. A great time was had by all. The atmosphere was great and we knew what was expected of us at each stage. The communication beforehand was excellent, well done on getting so many local businesses involved, and I have to say Usk as a town appeared to get behind the festival well. Just Sing! were delighted for example that the Usk Museum Cafe stayed open specially so our children and families could have a meal there between rehearsal and performance, when many other outlets would have been too expensive or not offering teenage food! A massive well done and thank you!"
"Well done to everyone involved in the organising of this fabulous event. I know many of the local businesses are grateful to you for the additional trade that it brought in. Roll on 2021!"
